Depends whether you override the browser and allow the certificate. If you allow it, and the URL shows "HTTPS" rather than "HTTP", it's still encrypted.
It's similar to self-generated certificates. You'll get the warning about it being invalid, but if you accept it anyway, you're still encrypted.
The "validity" (issued by a trusted authority) and expiration are entirely separate from the encryption.

"override the browser's objection" I mean, and force it to continue, or import the certificate, or whatever your particular browser says.
